Have you noticed that as the air gets cooler, the pumpkin cravings start kicking in? As a girl who has lived in Florida for her entire life, sometimes I forget just how chilly it can get outside and then one morning I wake up and it’s freezing! Okay, so many of you probably don’t consider 55 degrees F to be very cold, but when you’re used to temperatures soaring over 95 degrees F, that’s a pretty big difference!
While we may not get to experience a true seasonal weather change each year, my friend and I have a tradition of starting off the fall season, or as we like to call it, “pumpkin season,” with a piping hot pumpkin spice latte. From comforting slow cooker dinners to pumpkin seasoning on top of my morning espresso, I wish that the cozy feeling of fall could last a little bit longer. With all of this delicious food around, it’s easy to get caught up and eat a little too much this “pumpkin season.” That’s why I turn to Everyday Diabetic Recipes for all of the healthy fall recipes that I could dream of!
